"I got this boat last year. I had never boated before, and I had to move docks because I was had a hard time docking my boat by myself. Sideshift's thrusters made boating just so much easier. Docking situations I used to avoid, became easy!"


Georgian Bay, ON, Canada
Regal 2450 Commodore

"Once we found Sideshift, it just made the experience so pleasant. The boat will nearly rotate on a dime. Sideshift gave me back my boating experience.  "

AJ Apostol

Lake Pleasant, AZ, USA
35' Silverton

"Works fantastic. As you would imagine, coming into a slip with two feet on one side and one foot on the other with a 58 ft houseboat in a crosswind can be a bit challenging! I used to sweat a lot bringing it in, but not anymore. I know, even in wind, I can do it with little problems. What a huge difference these make! Should be standard on every houseboat."

Tim McNamara

New Palestine, IN, USA
58’ Jamestowner

"I've got the PT360 Docking System, which includes the bow and stern thruster. The PT360 has completely changed our boating experience: I've got a very narrow slip to get in to, even made narrower because we put a lift in there. So having the PT360 gives me complete maneuverability regardless of wind, current ... it just makes things so much easier. It's a very straightforward installation process ... if you're handy and you take your time and you read the instructions; and what's great is that if you have any questions, get on the phone with the guys from Sideshift and they'll talk you through anything. They're great, absolutely fantastic customer service."

Gene & Leslie Spennato

Lake Allatoona, GA, USA
25' Tahoe Tritoon

"I'm so happy for my Sideshift bow thruster. It makes docking so much easier - a pure pleasure! The best comment I got from a guy on the bridge this weekend - "Wow, That's the quietest bow thruster I've ever heard!""

Göran Vendel

25' Bayliner 245

"I couldn't have been more satisfied with the entire purchasing process with Sideshift. Their customer service and technical support teams were very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Installation was done entirely by myself while our 25' Harris Grand Mariner tri-toon was on it's lift at our dock. All instructions were clearly written along with drawings and photos to help identify each step. Parts were packaged exceptionally well and the complete unit arrived without one scratch and with almost everything needed for my particular installation. All components exposed to the environment appear to be either stainless steel, anodized or powder-coated. We have many restaurants around the Lake of the Ozarks here in Missouri and their various docks can get pretty congested on the weekends. Add a little wind to the equation, and docking can be a real challenge. I know that the Sideshift will make anyone look like a pro - whether you are pulling in or backing in."

Denis Siefert

Gravois Mills, MO, USA
Harris 250 Grand Mariner

"Absolutely fantastic from order to installation. As advertised, it's made docking pretty much stress-free. I'm a satisfied customer, keep up the great work."

Mohammad Bader

Kuwait City, Kuwait
Robalo R222EX

"Installation was just as stated. DIY and simple. Customer Service/Tech support is over the top.  Total game changer. Docking is a snap. My boat is a Motor Yacht so a huge canvas that was always taken by the wind. Now I have no anxiety about docking.  I do not know how you can improve on perfect because this company is as close as one can get.  I waited too long to buy this. I should have bought it earlier so I could get out more."

Tony Lacina

Sagamore Beach, MA, USA
Carver CPMY 39'

"It’s working great. Docking and departing at home between jet ski docks."

Dennis Henry

Fords, NJ, USA
Bennington 23'

"Customer service is awesome. Pat was extremely helpful and I can't say enough about the results!  Docking is way less stressful. Nobody in this area has Sideshift thruster yet, but I'm constantly talking about mine! Best addition ever."

Gerard Bencar

Mentor, OH USA
Carver AFT Cabin 33'

"Works great. So much more confident when docking."

Dan Paquette

Stoney Creek, ON, Canada
Sea Ray AFT Cabin 36'

"Customer service was great. I called and got help several times and spoke to someone right away. I installed a new battery bank and the stern thruster controls.  The stern thruster works great on my Mainship 34 Mk1. These boats don't "spin on a dime" like some boats so it's great to have better control over the stern. It has made getting into and out of my marina slip much easier. Instead of dreading the marina slip, I now look forward to it."

Michael Scott

Virginia Beach, VA, USA
Mainship MK1 34'

"Very easy.  The stern thruster, in conjunction with the bow thruster, makes backing into my slip a breeze. It has greatly reduced my wife’s stress level.  I’m totally satisfied."

Wayne Heath

Beaufort, SC, USA
Mainship Pilot 34'

"Super easy!!!!  I have a flybridge with a single motor. My bow thruster makes docking so easy."

Earl Wiegand

Vermillion, OH, USA
Carver flybridge 26'

"Great product and installation very easy...have floating dock so sat in canoe for the sterndrive work.  Works great and interfaces well with the front existing quick thruster."

Alex Dracoulas

Berwick, VIC Australia
Four Winns Vista 25'

"The process of purchasing and installing the thrusters on my boat was seamless and very straightforward.  The bow and stern thrusters work perfectly on my boat. I don't know how I managed in the past without them! Docking is effortless now, especially in the wind! They absolutely take the stress out of all docking situations.  In my mind, there is no better upgrade to be made than the addition of Sideshift Thrusters. I am 100% more confident in any docking situation, and would have no hesitation docking by myself using your products. The wireless lanyard controller even allows me to untie the boat by myself and secure the ropes without the worry of the boat moving away from the dock. A simple push of the buttons keeps the boat in place while I get aboard and ready to go. Best investment for any boat!!"

Tim Raven

Lindsay, ON, Canada
Four Winns ,Vista LOA 35'

"I think that the Sideshift with the remote should be the new "marriage saver". The integration of the existing bow thruster with the stern thruster and the remote, makes locking and docking so much easier. Our first trip bringing the boat home was over 30 locks, the remote made is very easy for me to handle the rear lines while my wife worked the bow."

Darren Parsons

Orleans, ON, Canada
Carver 44'

"Customer service was fantastic.  Working great, exactly what I was looking for. Makes docking a breeze in my 25FT Bennington Pontoon Boat.  Great product fairly priced for an Australian Customer"

Jason Reibelt

Brendale, QLD, Australia
Bennington 25'

"Purchase was easy. I was communicating directly with the CEO, who responded immediately to my questions and made the appropriate recommendation. Installation took about a day with the help of the detailed instruction booklet and videos, it went relatively smoothly.  Works as advertised. The product is made well. The hardware is all top quality.  I’m thrilled with my experience. Wouldn’t change a thing."

Leslie Streitfield

Robert Doerner

Montarville, QC, Canada

John Southen

Kanata, ON, Canada
Chris Craft, 36'

"Excellent phone support when I had questions. This is a great investment. I have not had it on very long but just the feeling knowing I have it makes for much easier boating times.  Awesome product for my Bayliner discovery 266. I put both bow and stern drive units on"

Russ Abbott

Martinez, CA, USA
Bayliner discovery 26'

"Customer service was excellent!! Installation was easy and straightforward.  The thruster works great. I added a stern thruster to my Pursuit which came with a factory bow thruster. The force of the Sideshift thruster matches that of my bow thruster. The dual joystick works both thrusters flawlessly.  The Sideshift thruster is so nice & quiet"

Roy Kucia  

Marble Head, OH  USA
Pursuit S 32'

"The purchasing experience was great. The rep was very helpful. I used it for the first time on 6/24/22 and it was fantastic. I was able to dock my 31-foot boat on the first attempt with no problems at all. It has all the power I need to move the boat. I feel very confident now that I have my bow thruster."

Jonathan Blakely

Southfield, MI USA
Bayliner Ciera 30'

"Installing the bow thruster was good with the manual and videos.  Really happy with the thruster. Always had a problem backing into my slip. Not any more. Thruster is a must for a single screw boat."

Bill Neville

Lindsay, ON, Canada

"Amazing. Life changing docking experience."

Chris Hurst

Babylon, NY  USA
Four winns Vista 29'

"Service and technical support was amazing from start to finish.  The change in confidence is a game changer when you install Sideshift (bow thruster in our case). I went from being nervous entering the harbour to now docking all by myself with the help of the wireless remote control."

Eric Rossi

Beaconsfield, QC, Canada
Cruisers Yacht 36'

"The stern thruster works great and is more powerful than I expected. My wife is super happy to not have to occasionally leap to the dock from the boat anymore."

Sidney Neal

Nipomo, CA, USA
Sea Ranger 47'

"Easy and I don’t fear docking in wind now. Thruster exceeds my hopes with its power"

Doug Erskine

Brian Jackson

"Simply put if I can do it anyone can.  I love them both. We are in a tight channel with changing wind directions depending on your location in the channel."

Mike Waugh

Columbus, OH, USA
Suntracker, 20'

"Really smooth experience with very good and quick responses to my questions. Everything was included in the kit and the installation instruction made installing itself a quite easy process - all done in one day."

Per Arve Ekle

Heimdal, Norway
Grandezza 27'

"Installed bow and stern thrusters. We live on the east coast of Florida with tidal changes of 4’ on average, and a typical 10-15 mph wind on a normal afternoon. The thrusters have made docking a stress free adventure now. Don’t have to put my wife in a dangerous situation of jumping off to the dock and trying to wrangle a 10,000 lb boat anymore. Game changer for our boating lifestyle.  Very happy with the system and will recommend to others."

Jeff Haluch

St Augustine, FL, USA
SeaRay Sundancer 28'

"The thruster works very well, is extremely quiet, and very powerful."

Demetri Ghinis

Vancouver, BC, Canada
Bayliner 28'

"It works perfectly! My boy is pretty tall, so wind catches it easily. The thrusters give me complete control of the bit in all weather situations. Docking for gas with a wind that pins you against the dock is no longer an issue.  I’m really glad I purchased Sideshift Thrusters!"

Mike Stanfill

Edmond, OK, USA
Silverton 41'

"Purchase was easy... thruster arrived early... installation was easier than I expected. Did not need to take the boat out of the water to install it.  Makes docking this 74 ft houseboat simple"

Robert Alley

Destin, FL, USA
Lakeview 74'

"Easy install, very well designed. Customer service is exceptional.  It is performing fantastic! Best item I ever installed on my boat. Makes docking very easy.  Very nice product and performs extremely well."

Louri Karmanov

Thornhill, ON, Canada
Rinker FV 36'

"Customer service was top notch. I talked through my boat and install before my purchase with sales and got good advice. I use my boat with my family and my Sideshift system has made me much less anxious at the dock! It is very intuitive to use and has plenty of thrust to swing my 25 ft pontoon"

Paul Stutes

Lafayette, LA, USA
Manitou 25'

"Ordering the PT360 Bow & Stern Thruster was super easy! Looking forward to stress-free docking! I’ve viewed several of the online videos and look forward to installing my PT360 bow and stern thrusters."

Stephen Simonds

Charlotte Hall, MD, USA
SunTracker Regency 32’

"My experience was great with dealing with the folks and their installers were also good folks. A little long of lead time to get the product, but the end result was functional thrusters that have worked well. I have a huge broad side and the wind takes her like a sail. Having Sideshift bow and stern thrusters with remote control gives me the confidence to go out even when wind picks up. Also, it allows me the ability to do pump outs or gas up single handedly with my 50 Ft. Fly Bridge MY!"

Patrick Martel

North York, ON, Canada
2004 Silverton 43 MY LOA 48

"It makes docking so easy. No stress! My wife said it was the best thing I bought for the boat."

William Kerr

Brantford, ON, Canada
Baja 295 Cruiser 29'

"My experience with purchasing and installing these was far better than I ever expected. Installation instructions and videos made it a very simple task to install them and get them going. I have had three houseboats. My boat is 73' X 16' and it has always been VERY stressful leaving and returning to the dock. Since installing these it is now VERY easy to do without the stress of playing bumper boats when the least amount of wind is present. Only additional comment is thanks so much for providing me a good product that actually works and making the purchase and install very easy for the owner."

Steve Parker

Mooresville, NC, USA
73' Houseboat

" Had both bow and stern thruster installed and they work perfectly. Makes docking a joy with no stress. Won’t have a boat without Sideshift. It makes boating fun."

John Callaghan

Charleston, SC, USA
Key West 23' DFS Yanmar

"Very engaged and repsonsive customer service. Answered our calls and emails very quickly when we did our self-install. Performance of our bow and stern thruster has been excellent. We can manage the boat very well now in higher-winds, and when the wind is low or gone the boat is an agile dancer at the dock."

Richard Foubert

Toronto, ON, Canada
Maxum 4100 SCA 41'

"Sideshift were great folks to deal with. Any stress (and there was plenty) is totally gone. I have 100 percent control over my 35’ Bay Liner now. I have both bow and stern thrusters and I’m now in total control of my vessel. Down here in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, I’m the only one with them, but the way I brag them up I bet I won’t be the only for long. "

Maurice George

Shelburne, NS, Canada
37’ Bay Liner

"Everything went very well, customer service was great even when I left the bow thruster down and needed to order the repair kit. Every pontoon boat should be equipped with your product.  I love your product!!! And recommend it for all pontoon boat owners. "

Norm Armitage

Armstrong, BC, Canada
Manitou 23’

"I had trouble finding a company to install the system so I did it myself because luckily I have a few skills. Installation was straight forward and SideShift Support were easy to contact for any question! The thrusters are working great and have reduced the stress of docking especially in tight spaces like busy restaurants docks. "

Justin Hudson

Montgomery, TX, USA
SouthBay 925 Sport Series 28'

"Let me start by saying...WOW. Purchasing experience and installation of both of my thrusters was amazing. Customer service is hands down the best I have ever seen from any other industries. For once, getting this kind of service from all the staff, admin, sales and tech. I strongly recommend Sideshift. It did not help reduce docking stress, it eliminated all docking stress. Being a new owner of my 28' boat, I would stress visiting new marinas and docking. Now, just point where you want me to dock. It has simply has removed all stress for docking and using lock systems. The performance of both thrusters is just amazing - to be able to move sideways with both thrusters is simply amazing.  I've had people on the dock asking me how I docked my boat sideways against the wind...I told them Sideshift. I'm a huge fan of your product and my marina knows it. "

Alan Stewart

Hammond, ON, Canada
28' Doral Monticello

"Excellent service and prompt delivery. I have only used it once and it has made a huge difference! The kit was of very high quality, everything needed for the job. Keep doing what you're doing."

Brett Evans

Warragul, Victoria, Australia
43 Maritimo

"Fast shipping was great since I was trying to get lots done in a short maintenance period. Staff was very helpful in purchase and follow up tech support. Installation was very straightforward and the kit was quite comprehensive.  So nice to have everything included! The thruster works well and is very helpful in docking.  I have a back-in slip in a cross current so docking without assist would be tough."

Van Dobson

Williamsburg, VA, USA
2009 Mainship 31' Pilot

"The thruster works well for my boat.  My Sideshift purchase was well supported and organized. I was accommodated when a last minute change was requested! Sideshift went above and beyond. "

Joshua Newbury

Weston, MA, USA
52’ Hatteras Cockpit Motor Yacht

"Customer service was terrific. I was very pleased with the service and help from your guys and I have already spoken about them to all other users of your products at our marina in Western Australia. The thruster was already fitted to my houseboat and I was amazed how much thrust the small propellors produce. It swings my 40 ft house boat around without any trouble. Keep doing what you are doing. Keep the service people you have as they are good to deal with and a great company asset.  "

Philip Clements

Brigadoon, WA, Australia
43' Houseboat

"Both the bow and stern thrusters installed with ease and work great! Customer service for spare fuses and installation tips was great. They work great and my wife can now even dock our 35 ft Silverton with ease!"

Robert Wadsworth

Kincardine, ON, Canada
Silverton 31'

"Great customer service and installation always easy knowing the guys are only a phone call away. Works great and now automatically shuts off when raised. People love to watch us come in and how easy it is to turn the boat to dock. Absolutely love it and it will be on the next boat we purchase as well. Makes us look like pros when docking!"

Rob Harris

Toledo, OH, USA
25' Bentley Tri-toon

"Excellent from start to finish office staff very pleasant and installation was excellent. Chose the 360 model and looking forward to upcoming boating season. Very nice product well engineered and easy to use."

Mark Streit

Johnstown, ON, Canada
27' Bennington Tritoon

"Customer service was fantastic. Pat walked me through the installation of the new control box kit which made it a breeze to put together. I have a 340 stern thruster on an older Marine Trader 40 and it makes maneuvering around docks pretty easy."

Gray Parker

Kiln, MS, USA
Marine Trader Europa 40

"Very easy to set up with manual book. It works very well and helps us a lot. I would recommend it to anyone!"

Milomir Stula

"Super easy like driving a car."

Dong Nguyen

"Excellent from start to finish. Sideshift is first class. Life is so much easier and there is no panic when it come to docking. I have recommended Sideshift to everyone I know that has a boat.    "

Kevin Day

Sandgate, Queensland, Australia
36' Searay 355

"Installation was very straightforward with easy to follow instructions. Wow! It has made a world of difference in my ability to dock even with wind and current. It's great to have control of the bow. I would recommend Sideshift to any one who owns a boat. "

Larry Sivyer

Palmer, AK, USA
Bayliner 289 Discovery 28'

"Everyone was helpful and knowledgeable! Technical advice for installation on a wooden boat was helpful. The thruster has been amazing. We have a 40 food wooden boat with a single screw and the thruster makes docking and maneuvering in tight places easy and damage free."

Jeremy Clark

Topping, VA, USA
Chesapeake Deadrise 40'

"The greatest gift to docking ever! I love it! Takes the sweat out of docking. Honestly the team is top notch, whether I needed usage help or ordering parts. Keep up the great work!    "

Ralph Scheuermann

Niagara Falls, ON, Canada
Bayliner Ciera 3055

"I absolutely enjoyed installing the bow and stern thrusters. Great products that work perfectly! Totally less stress."

Richard Csanadi

Courtice, ON, Canada
24’ Tri-Toon SunChaser

"Fantastic experience, installation, and love using it. My only regret is that I didn’t get it sooner! Completely removed any anxiety about docking in windy situations which allowed us to go out on days where we previously may have stayed in. We also stayed out longer without feeling the need to get back before the wind picked up a bit. Made a huge impact on our enjoyment of our boat."

Jeff Solomon

Newmarket, ON, Canada
Carver 355 Aft Cabin

"Easy purchase. It was shipped directly to the installer.  The stern thruster is working great. It has reduced my docking stress by 90%. Incorporating the existing bow thruster onto the same panel control and remote FOB looks and works great!"

Craig Davis

Carrollton, TX, USA
Kadey Krogen Manatee 36

"A pre-purchase phone call was pleasant and very informative.  Ordering was painless.  Delivery was early, complete, and in perfect condition.  Installation instructions were very clear and online videos were helpful. ST230-OB works perfectly for my Rosborough Sedan Cruiser 246, single Evinrude 225HP.  The boat is a trawler with a high wind profile.  With fall wind, some practice, docking will no longer rely on praying. My experience with Sideshift products has been 100+% positive."

David Luz

West Warwick, RI, USA
Rosborough Sedan Cruiser 246

"Very good and very impressed. No longer needing someone on the dock to help me moor the dock and no more stress to go out and come back to the dock."

Paul Caron

Otterburn Park, QC, Canada
25’ Pontoon SouthBay 525RS

"Extremely satisfied with both customer service and installation process. Installation was very smooth! Love it! My level of docking stress is completely gone! I really like to show off! My friends are impressed and so is the staff at the marina."

Yvan Perron

Ottawa, ON, Canada
2009 Searay Sundancer 270

"We had a great experience and felt comfortable with this big purchase for our houseboat. Our original prop came damaged but the customer service team was so friendly and we were able to get a replacement really quick in order to get the thruster mounted before the end of the season while the water was low enough. Can’t wait to use it in the spring! This thruster has given us much great peace of mind knowing we have the ability to move the front of the boat side to side."

Monica Warner

Louisville, KY, USA
55' 1985 Homemade Houseboat

"Great experience with purchase! I had it shipped straight to my marina and they installed it for me. They had never seen a thruster for a Tritoon. They loved it as much as me!"

Rick Malone

Heathsville, VA, USA
21' Bennington Tritoon

"It's worked very well. Very difficult situations have become manageable! It's a head turner at the dock."

Juan Salleras

Fernandina Beach, FL, USA
Rosborough 246

"With no prior experience, I had owned the 33’ Sea Ray Sundancer for about a year and had taken lessons but the slips in our marina are 90 degrees to the wind so I would almost always drift into my neighbours boat with any wind, and it was super stressful that I was afraid to take guests and now, just like everyone testifies, it has made maneuvering a difficulty of the past. We have the 340 series bow and stern. Our stress level has gone way down. It is easy to take guests and place them calmly against the dock. I highly, highly recommend them!  "

Dan Collado

San Diego, CA, USA
1995 Searay Sundancer 33’

"As advertised, a real smooth process from start to finish. Lots of power and has made docking a cinch! One issue with the tie strap holders provided but the situation was quickly corrected."

Randy MacDonald

Cornwall, ON, Canada
Sea Ray 370 Venture

"Amazing product. We enjoy taking our boat out so much now without the stress of docking if it gets windy. "

Karen Johnson

Henderson, NV, USA
27' Bayliner 2655

"Everyone we were in contact with were very pleasant and professional to interact with. We were kept well informed on the process and installation schedule. We are a high, single engine vessel and the addition of bow and stern thrusters has made docking and departing an absolute breeze. The inside joke is that having the thrusters has cut into the social part of marina life because everyone used to come running to catch us. After install, no one runs to catch us anymore. They just wave. We cannot tell how pleased we are with the thrusters. They have extended our time out on the water, allowing us to go out on days we would avoid due to windy conditions."

David Primeau

Kincardine, ON, Canada
36' Marine Trader Trawler

"My bow thruster is perfect! Works better than expected on our heavy single engine boat! So much more control now and we can turn on a dime!! Excellent and personalized customer service every step of the way!"

Paul Gimeli

Dix Hills, NY, USA
Rinker 270 Express Cruiser

"I have a stern thruster and love it. It works perfectly and is very helpful in docking with my single screw boat. Customer service was great and the install quite straight forward. The online videos were helpful."

Les Rozander

St George, ON, Canada
28' Marinette Express

"I love it. Runs very quiet and reacts quickly when activated. In fact, it's so quiet I can’t even hear it. The only way I know it's working is the movement of the stern."

James Tatosky

Chelmsford, MA, USA
28’ AlbinTournment

"The purchase and install was excellent. Time wise, the shipping and delivery was great. The installers recommended are absolutely perfect. They work great and life at the dock and I’m tight spots are super easy. Thank you for such an excellent product."

Carlos Hernandez

Southwest Ranches, FL, USA
Avalon Pontoon

"Our stern thruster is working fantastically and has certainly given us peace of mind when the wind starts to pick up."

Wayne Phillip

Catherine Hill Bay, NSW, Austraila
36' Carver Mariner

"Fantastic customer service and very detailed and simple installation. Every boater should have these thrusters; it takes the frustration out of docking no matter the situation. Very good products and service already. Extremely pleased!!!"

Mark Greek

Dartmouth, NS, Canada
29’ Regal Express

"Very easy to install. I really like the control I now have of my bow."

Jason Britton

Galloway, OH, USA
Trojan F36 Tri-Cabin

"Outstanding in all respects. Choosing to have your staff install it was a wise decision. The minimal cost compared to the time needed to do it myself was a no brainer. Pat and the rest of the crew were quick and explained everything they were doing through every step of the way. Added a complete instruction session at the end regarding the system and operation. Still being new to cabin cruiser boating, I have to say that the successful docking's I've seen so far have only been accomplished because of the addition of this thruster. Honestly, the assistance it provides is more than welcomed by an inexperienced boater like myself. Contemplating the addition of a stern as well. I know it seems like I'm sugar coating this but I'm not. I do however feel I need to speak up (doesn't happen often because I'm not easily impressed) when I truly feel it deserves recognition. It definitely does in this case."

Cliff Vallier

Kingston, ON, Canada
Rinker Fiesta Vee 340

"It was a seamless and straight forward process...the hardest part was waiting for the Sideshift to arrive! The thruster has been one of the most important improvements we have made. I now feel and look like an old salt at the dock. I would highly recommend Sideshift for the price, ease of installation and peace of mind. Thank you Sideshift."

Greg Pilecki

Breslau, ON, Canada
SeaRay 400

"Stern thruster unit installation was straightforward and I needed some technical assistance to coordinate the wireless control of the existing tunnel bow thruster. Works well, very happy to have that extra measure of control. It's much quieter than my Vetus bow thruster. Love the pin-point control. Satisfied with every aspect of the process and the performance."

James Parker

Waterloo, ON, Canada
SeaRay 460DA

"Dealing with Sideshift was a pleasant experience. Communication was quickly answered and the installation kit and included supplies was complete and comprehensive beyond my imagination. This company has thought of every detail to make installation easy. Crimping tool, heat shrink, Sikaflex, battery disconnect, lugs...all included!! Our 32’ Nordic Tug has such strong prop walk in reverse that I was simply unable to back up to port. The stern thruster makes this manoeuvre simple and enjoyable. Love this thruster!"

Murray Fenwick

Sidney, BC, Canada
32' Nordic Tug

"Very exciting to see them working well and definitely increased my confidence level. Controller worked well at my helm, as video suggested location.  Initially, as I started surveying a location at the bow and stern, I was very apprehensive and took a long time in identifying the locations and marking them to drill several holes. I took lots of pictures and send them to Pat. He reached out to me promptly and guided me to mark the locations. Thank you, Pat. I wanted to tell you a little story. Weekend before the Memorial Day 2021, we started sailing later in the day then wanted from Monroe, MI to Detroit, MI. By the time we arrived at the marina, it was dark, and I definitely was not familiar with the area. But with both thrusters working and a spotter, I was able to back my 40 ft boat to the dock, and maneuvered it like I was an expert captain. I do recommend this product. By the way, lots of people have inquired about my thrusters."

Andre Rozier

Sterling Heights, MI, USA
37' Mainship Yacht

"Excellent customer service. Had a bad volt meter and it was replaced very quickly. Thrusters work great! My 56' houseboat can go anywhere I want it now! I'm 50x more confident in my docking skills now! Honestly, great product. I think I would have purchased them sooner, if they were a bit cheaper."

Dalyn Vormestrand

Redwind, MI, USA
56' Twin Anchors 5615

"I needed some help with the installation and your service team helped me with my questions. They were great! The thruster works as advertised. I think you will be seeing some additional orders from the Forked River and Barnegat, New Jersey area once my friends see how well it works."

"The wireless component, the integration with the factory bow thruster, and the control pad to allow use of both thrusters at once is fantastic. The videos on your site were the key to our purchase."

John Varpness

"My purchase experience was great. I hired a boat company to do the install, they said it went fine. The thruster works perfectly. I am now able to turn a 26 foot boat in a 40 foot wide canal and dock without issue."

Leland Wight

23' Lowe Tritoon RFL

"Very easy to purchase, fast shipping and friendly service. Installation instructions are easy to follow and easy to understand. I purchased both bow and stern thruster for my 2859 Bayliner hardtop and they both work amazing. I will never have a boat without thrusters again. I can't see anything you could do better. Honestly, my experience with your company was a great one. When I buy my next boat, I will call you first to get thrusters."

Scott Williamson

Alliance, OH, USA
Bayliner 2859 Hardtop

"Customer service was great. The entire ordering process and the help I received making a decision on size unit was great. I really enjoyed the talking with the friendly knowledgeable staff. The installation manual is very detailed and easy to follow. The thruster is very easy to install. I think you have a great product."

Robert Scherman

Grand Blanc, MI, USA
42' Jefferson Trawler

"Smooth ordering process and had marina install. Excellent pin point control of my 26 ft pontoon boat. Now I can go out and come in without worrying about the wind strength and direction. I am able to dock my boat solo which was impossible before Sideshift. My experience with purchasing and the functionality of the thrusters (bow and stern) has been excellent."

Mike Berbaum

"The customer service was excellent. I was impressed with DIY install and instructions. It seems to work fine especially going through the locks on the canal. It also quite helpful making tight turns and docking!"

Stephen Sharpe

"Purchase and delivery was better than expected. The product is awesome. Front and rear thrusters work flawlessly and I would have any boat with them. They take care of every expected install part. Only issue was that a 20' Kingfisher OB has a bow design issue."

Mike Kuziw

West Kelowna, BC, Canada
20' Kingfisher 2025 HHT

"Immediate access to customer service - very nice and knowledgeable people. The installation was straightforward and easy. For a bow thruster, it's so nice to not have to cut a tunnel! A little more thrust would always be nice when it’s needed in a current or wind scenario."

George Kachmarik

Belle Isle, FL, USA
37' Looker 370

"Customer service was as expected. The thruster was installed by a boatyard without any issues. I choose the Sideshift rear thruster for 2 reasons. First, we have gotten a bit older and docking with wind or current had become tougher. Second, there was not enough room to install a through transom thruster without moving other components. During docking in wind or current, I can stand on the swim platform, use the remote to shift the stern over to the dock, and step off instead of jumping. I can also use the remote to "hold" the stern against the dock while securing the lines. No tug of war with the lines."

Ed Jacobs

Salem, OR, USA
32' Motor Yacht

"I recently purchased a 55’ Neptunus Cabrio 2006. It was my first larger boat weighing 55,000 lbs. I was wanting to have a solid stern thruster installed since it only came with a bow thruster. I was anxious about control since my marina is a smaller one and I was going to have some tight-fit maneuvering to do. After researching several different options I decided to go with the SideShift ST350. This was the best decision I ever made. The unit is reasonably priced, very powerful, high quality, and easy to install. The unit is compact, and only requires 6 small above waterline thru-holes, and easily cleared the hydraulic swim platform. The dual-radio joystick controller was also easy to install and easy to integrate with my existing bow thruster.  This is a great powerful product that does exactly what they say it will do. The company and staff are top drawer. I would definitely use SideShift again and I would highly recommend them to anyone."

Daney D'Andrea

Hamilton, ON, Canada
55' Neptunus Cabrio

"Excellent feature on my pontoon. A real head-turner. Enjoyed customer service too. As I am not stressed in docking the pontoon, it sure reduces stress on nearby boat owners when they realize this pontoon is equipped with a truster. "

Jacques Gauthier

L’Original, ON, Canada
28' Avalon Funship

"Purchasing the unit, and install with the factory installer was excellent. It is working perfectly. Just as I expected. Docking used to be so stressful. Now I am in total control of the boat. Absolutely recommend thrusters from Sideshift. It has made docking my boat effortless since install."

Seth van Stralen

Winchester, ON, Canada
27' Avalon Funship

"First-rate service for ordering and shipping. Very accommodating for my particular requirements. Excellent technical support during installation. The installation kit was very complete. Nothing was missed. I installed the bow thruster while the boat was in the water. I would not recommend installing the bow thruster with the boat in the water. The stern thruster was installed when the boat was out of the water. This was so much easier. The bow thruster is working very well and allows two of us to leave the dock with adverse crosswinds that otherwise would prevent us from leaving the dock. The remote controls are great as I can leave the steering station so I can look if the docking lines are detached. As our boat is a 38 ft flybridge it is difficult to see what is happening with the lines without leaving the steering station. Now it is much safer as I can control the thrusters remotely. "

Gary Nash

Rigaud, QC, Canada
38' Sea Ray 380AC

"Great customer service! Easy installing with great instructions. I look like a pro when docking now. With the key fob, I can land her by myself with ease! I have the stern thruster. I would assume bow or stern thrusters will work for whatever your situation is."

David King

34' Mainship

"Customer service was excellent. Staff answered many questions, and I installed the thruster successfully. The wiring schematic was very easy to follow. The kit was very complete; just add batteries, battery cable, boxes and a little wire. It works well. It reduces docking stress. I liked the stern thruster so well, I recently ordered a bow thruster. "

Peter Anthony

42' Davis Trawler

"Excellent customer service and expert installation by your technician. Such a positive experience that I am now installing your new inboard outboard stern unit. Love it, works just as advertised. I now have a much happier wife and myself, takes the stress out of docking even in challenging conditions. "

"Customer service is second to none. I had many questions that were answered by email and in person! I had the unit installed by my marina without issue. Amazingly responsive unit. I no longer fear docking in a wind. I no longer fear heading out if there’s a wind! Can’t think of any way to improve an already perfect system!"

Barney Keeton

"The entire process was great. My salesperson and installer Rick was great, he is so knowledgeable about the product we became good friends. The thrusters both bow & stern have been the best in many situations, especially in heavy winds or tight spots when docking. I know my boat well but with the thrusters, it’s so easy to dock and my wife loves them knowing I’m totally in control. We have a 45’ tri cabin. I show off the thrusters everywhere we dock - people watch me and always say "Good job Captain"."

Scott Gorman

Bethpage, NY, USA
48' SeaRay 480 Motor Yacht

"Customer service was excellent. Installation was very straightforward. Absolutely love it! I leave and come back to dock in conditions that I would have avoided in the past. I could have used one more foot in length on the provided cables for my Mainship 34T. This would have allowed me to mount the control box to a bulkhead. The remote battery should have a better retainer. "

Todd Reynolds

34' Mainship

"My Sales contact was Rob Griffin, From the initial contact with Rob and his expertise, he walked me through a number of questions I had. From the initial contact to purchasing and delivery, packaging to perfection, and self-installation, the entire start to finish was outstanding. Thanks, Rob. This is a recent new purchase and was installed when the boat was lifted this fall (2020)"

Terry Stewart

Erin, ON, Canada
38' Holiday Mansion Coastal Cruiser

"System installed by the previous owner. I installed a new motor recently from the swim-step while the boat was in the water. Does the job and allows me to not have to have crew jump for the dock etc... much safer and better control of the boat which is a single-engine, inboard style. Might consider providing as an option, a 10-12-inch long cylindrical removable cover centered on the propellers to focus prop thrust to increase the power of thrust for units that are not submerged by much. A good system as far as ease of installation and cost."

Robin Dalton

Anacortes, WA, USA

Derrick Walters

"I know now that I can take my boat anywhere without fear of docking the wrong way. It provides me with assurance that this device allows me to correct/alleviate my mistakes when docking. It is easy to use, plus the remote capacity is a plus when docking. Thank you for the exemplary service."

Roland Gendreau

Orleans, ON, Canada
28' FourWinns Vista 285

"The thruster works well, it helps my docking immensely. I’m on a river that flows north and south I need to dock east from west - hard without it. My thruster is on the rear. The strap holding it to the outboard motor has come loose, need to warn owners to check at least once a month in season. I would be lost without it. My boat is 31’ x 11, made of wood, and heavy; hard to maneuver.  It weighs over 1300lb; would love to put one on the bow of the boat also."

Joe Pagliaro

Huntingtown, MD, USA
31' Home Built Boat

"My boat is a 29-foot cruiser with a single engine and my slip is very tight. I used to have a nightmare docking my boat. When I got back to the marina to dock my boat, all my neighbors used to come and help. I was not enjoying my boat. Many times even with a light wind, I made the decision not to go out because I had a problem backing into my slip. I am so glad to have Sideshift’s bow and stern thruster - I have no issues anymore. My neighbors are glad as well and they are not worried anymore about having accident with their boat. The only issue is, the fuses burn very easily."

Manoush Hakimi

Richmond Hill, ON, Canada
29' Monterey SY280

"Fantastic. Had it landed in Sydney Australia in about 7 days. Changed my life. My son completed the wiring and did the fitting. All done in a morning. I tell anyone who’ll listen just how good it is. Especially love the remote which hangs around my neck on the lanyard when I’m at the stern of the boat docking it in tricky situations."

Anthony de Wilde

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
34' Mariner 3400 Flybridge Cruiser

"Without a doubt, the bow and stern thrusters make docking much easier and safer, all with lower stress levels. Especially in wind and current situations. They are great. I’m not sure how they could be better. The remote fob is a huge asset. They are super quiet. Even dock staff don’t realize they are helping."

Doug McNeill

Burlington, ON, Canada
45' SeaRay 400 Express

"The Sideshift SS230 provides more than enough thrust to turn the boat even against a stiff breeze. I installed a Blue Sea double pole battery switch so the thruster is completely isolated from the battery to reduce further the chance of electrolytic corrosion. I have been really impressed by the speed of reply to technical enquiries by email and the overall degree of customer support. The Sideshift thruster has provided a means of fitting a bow thruster to a wooden boat without the intrusion of a tunnel and in a manner that is completely reversible. It is also appealing from a technical perspective that, in comparison to a tunnel thruster, the propeller is larger in diameter, more deeply submerged, and acts further forward. This maximizes the thruster’s efficiency and effectiveness. It also avoids the characteristic tunnel thruster cavitation noise so employing the thruster is more discrete. The thruster has helped keep me sailing. Sailing trials have also shown that there is minimal extra drag and a hardly perceptible change to boat speed."

Peter Wright

Wylam, Northumberland, England
29' Custom Built Buchanan

"Very good. Rob Griffin and I exchanged several emails to ensure the right product was purchased for my need. The lifeboat was a white knuckler when coming into the marina..now it's a breeze. You guys developed a simple design that was not difficult to install with the help of a handy friend. Thanks. "

Paul Governale

Lafayette, LA, USA
32' Converted Harding Lifeboat

"Very smooth process from ordering to installation. Even the way the product was packaged was very professional. A true game-changer. I added a stern thruster (already had a bow thruster). I have a 50' boat and before I didn't want to take the boat out because docking was a nightmare. Now my stress level is very low when approaching the dock! I feel like I have total control of my vessel even with cross-winds. The product is first class and the service was great. I did add two struts to brace the extension tube because there was some deflection on the initial start of the thruster. "

Paul Scherzer

Manalapan, NJ, USA
50' Silverton 453

"Purchasing was very easy. The salesperson was very helpful at understanding my needs. Installation was performed by a Sideshift installer and he was very professional and knowledgeable. My stern thruster makes all the difference in the world. I already had a bow thruster that came with my boat so with my Sideshift dual joystick I can now control my boat with the confidence of a pro! People at my Marina are jealous at how easy it is for me to dock in the worst situations. Before I needed someone to help me dock, now I can do it all alone and safely!"

Eric Boule

Gatineau, QC, Canada
25' Jeanneau NC 795

"Our area has strong currents with 10' tides, so getting to and from the dock can be tricky. The combination of stern and bow thruster is a game changer and works great to reduce the most stressful time of boat operation. Your company sold me exactly what I asked for. My experience overall was very very good. I would definitely recommend you to others."

Chris Saunders

St. Simons, GA, USA
Grady White 360 Express

"Navigating a houseboat is like navigating a brick through the water. With my thruster, I can pull into the dock like threading a needle. The customer service is excellent both before and after the sale. I received great support during the installation process. "

Rich Zuckett

35' Catamaran Cruiser

"Purchasing and installation could have not gone any better or easier. It has been 2 years & works great helps tremendously in docking. This is a great company & they will be with you every step of the way I have never been able to say such good things about a big company before."

Don Young

Larry Peyton

Fall River, NS, Canada
28' Bayliner 2855

"So far, I can only say it’s a great product. Very good value, cost effective. Pre-purchase, all my questions were addressed satisfactorily. My one installation question was answered quickly and completely. Installation was straightforward with the good instructions provided. It works as advertised. I’m still on a learning curve, in that I’ve depended solely on a bow thruster for years. Where it’s been most helpful is in and around locks on the Rideau where space is tight. Just knowing I have the Sideshift has reduced stress."

Phil Pennington

Spring Grove, PA, USA
36' Monk

"The thruster performs adequately for very slow speed maneuvering on and off the dock. Having additional control adds a great deal of confidence to manage what used to be very tense moments. The best part about working with Sideshift was their willingness to help solve complex concerns on a replacement/retrograde/refit for a ten plus-year-old unit. A few photos and phone calls had me back together and the new unit functioning as expected."

"I can't tell you how much your concern, professionalism and expertise helped to ease a stressful situation for us! It's obvious that your company cares about its customers and the products you sell. Even though I "inherited" the thruster on a boat I purchased last October, you treated me like I was the original buyer. I am 64 years old and this was probably one of the VERY best customer service experiences that I've ever had! You can bet I'll recommend your company to anyone in the marina interested in a thruster. Again, my sincere thanks"

"Thrusters work great. Can't imagine not having them. Although they don't combat strong winds they do help. In any other situation - including light winds - they are invaluable. I like them. If I have a different boat going forward and need a thruster solution I wouldn't hesitate to use Sideshift."

Wayne Ricard

"I researched thrusters online and liked the Sideshift because I could install it myself which reduced the cost. I called the company and spoke with the owner who recommended the 7 1/2 HP thruster for my 39 ft Carver Motoryacht. Installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. As promised I have more control during docking which makes me more comfortable in windy conditions. I highly recommend the Sideshift Thruster and look forward to installing a stern thruster at some point in time."

"My wife and I call it a marriage saver. Between our dock and the others behind us, there isn't much room so we can come in and turn the boat 90 degrees straight into the slip. Works like a dream."

Jon King

"Prior to installing the Sideshift Thruster docking my 70 foot, full keel, single-prop motor sailer was a nightmare. Due to the configuration of my boat I could only install a stern thruster. The stern thruster allows me to point the bow towards the dock to throw a bow line and then use the stern thruster to bring in the aft totally stress-free. I received a quote from the boatyard for $16,000 to install a Stern Thruster. I had my Sideshift Thruster up and running for $5500 and I didn’t have to haul the boat!"

Mike Jansen

"Purchasing was easy, installation using the manual supplied was straightforward. The thruster is very powerful and almost silent."

Andy Durno

34' Marine Trader 34 DC

"I can now dock anywhere with confidence that I can counter-act wind and current. I have a single-engine trawler and it is very difficult to dock in certain conditions. It has transformed my cruising experiences. It allows me to visit places that I would have been very reluctant to visit before installing the stern thruster."

Jeff Dudley

Port Charlotte, FL, USA
34' Mainship 34 MK1

"I cannot even begin to tell you how pleased that I am with my side shifters. Docking has now become a pleasure as opposed to a project. I can dock so easily now and I am the talk and envy of my marina. Boaters are amazed when they see the side shifters in action. Thank you"

Jack Arzoomanian

Richmond, VA, USA
35' CT Trawler

"I have a Bow and a Stern Sideshift Thruster. When we moved up to the 32' Carver with the Flybridge, it was intimidating. It's wider, it's longer, not as easy to see off, and any breeze at all and you are a kite.  Having the thrusters on this boat has enabled us to go out whereas, before we had the thrusters on, there were days we wouldn't go out because of the conditions. It's very nice to be able to catch the bow when the wind comes up, especially if I am backing in to a slip. I haven't noticed any difference in performance at slow or high speeds.   Tight slips, wind, docking on the wrong side, whatever – it just takes all the stress out of my boating. There won't be another boat I'll own without Sideshift Thrusters on it."

Pat Delahunty

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
32' Carver Aft Cabin

"I had a 380 Sundancer before this boat, and had a stressful time driving it in the very beginning. I did some research and put the Sideshift Bow and Stern thrusters on. To be honest, after 3 seasons of driving it I got kind of spoiled with the level of control that it gave me – in any sized slip or windy conditions. When our family upgraded to the 48’ Sea Ray, it came with a bow thruster from the factory, but it didn’t have a Stern Thruster. I felt in my first windy situation that I was missing some of the control that I really wanted to have. We investigated getting a Stern Thruster put on the boat, and some of the quotes we were getting were as high as $20,000. When I went back to Sideshift, it was awesome because it was only a fraction of that price. We got it installed, and I’m happy to report we got that same level of control in the new boat! One of the criteria I had was that I didn’t want to put any holes in the boat under the waterline, so it was nice that the Sideshift mounts above the waterline. Very non-intrusive. I can tell you that Sideshift makes boating amazing."

Aaron Lebarre

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
48' Sea Ray

"Thruster meeting all my expectations. Docking has become so much easier with Sideshift stern thruster in combination with existing bow thruster. The whole process from the time of purchase, installation, speed of delivery was second to none."

Donald Anning

Taroona, Tasmania, Australia
Cruiser Yachts 33 Express

"My purchase experience was excellent. I am still getting used to it as I have only used it 4 or 5 times, but it has made docking so much easier. "

Bill Zeltman

Marlton, NJ, USA
34' Marine Trader Double Cabin Yacht Trawler

"Purchasing was great, installation of the thruster unit was easy. The stern thruster works great for my 75ft houseboat. It has made docking in higher winds way less stressful and safer. I sleep better at night when out on the lake knowing the next day I don’t have to worry as much about changing wind conditions when I have to dock. The stern thruster makes my boating experience much more enjoyable! "

John Zavaro

Columbia, TN, USA
75' Houseboat

"The thruster has out performed my expectations and a number of people at my marina that hadn't heard of this thruster before. My boat was very difficult to maneuver in tight marinas and avoided certain places; now I don't hesitate to go anywhere."

Malcolm Wright

Bintree, Dereham, UK
37' Bounty

"Customer Service "Second to None". Installation very straightforward courtesy of coherent instructions and excellent booklet. Sideshift fitted in order to moor in gaps otherwise too difficult in windy conditions. And it has provided this facility with ease. Very impressed with quality of the whole Sideshift Package."

George Waddington

Taynuilt, Scotland
22' Sessa Key Largo

"I bought my boat with the Sideshift bow thruster already installed. I love it. Docking is far more stressful without it. After 10 years the thruster needed some maintenance, and while it was off the boat I felt far less in control. "

Tony Vienneau

"Installation was 100% the best I've experienced for what some would look at as a major DIY project; me included. I installed a bow thruster and it's working great and exactly as it was promised on the website. I love the remote fob to activate the thruster. Thank you to the team at Sideshift for making me look like a docking pro."

Sam Schiff

Staten Island, NY, USA
26' Tollycraft Sedan

"The service was amazing. Installation was painless. A few hours to install, and back in the water same day. Improved docking 100 percent. Had a hell of a time docking. While backing in, the bow was all over the place. Now with a quick tap on the Sideshift knob, I am able to bring the bow back into place . I dock in a place where there is only a few inches from the other boat and when the wind picks up it was impossible to dock. Many times I would not move the boat because I would have a tough time docking and now it’s a breeze. "

Frank Saratidis

Toronto, ON, Canada
Carver 2557

"Good service, easy to install. It's really helped me when I arrive at the dock. Yes, it has been a great help to reduce my stress when it is a windy day. For me, so far so good. This is a very good product and I don't hesitate to recommend the thruster to our friends at the marina."

Michel Rodgers

Bowman, QC, Canada
Four Winns Vista 298

"The purchasing process was flawless. My pontoon cost me 129k. I could not afford to not make the investment which has given me a stress free docking experience. More importantly protects my investment and others investments around me. Countless times I could have ended up with damage had I not been able to maneuver. The service and product quality overall is great. "

Daniel Quenneville

Lebanon, OH, USA
25' Bennington QXD

"This was mounted on my new 24' pontoon. Worked good moving the boat sideways to the dock. Has a remote handheld controller which is nice to walk around and tie up as you move the boat over. Yes it reduced the stress for me. Any breeze would catch the fence and move the boat around."

Doug Prosser

Shorewood, IL, USA
Harris Solstice 220

"The purchase experience was very good and installing the stern thruster straightforward. The stern thruster is working great and is silent in operation. The boat now handles both to port and starboard. I am not joking when I say it is the best investment I have made in the boat. My wife is now happy to go anywhere where as before she, and I, were apprehensive as the stern would not move to starboard. "

Raymond Oliver

"Your installer Rick was wonderful, and very accommodating. He did a great job on installation, shipping, dry-docking and coordination. The thruster has truly changed my boating life! I am a first-time 42 foot boat owner and the stress of putting that unit in my marina was unnerving. I have never hesitated to move the boat since thrusters were installed. They are nothing short of amazing! Moving the boat is now effortless. Very satisfied customer."

Perry Mele

Seattle, WA, USA
42' Silverton

"Excellent We purchased the large stern thruster. Installation was done by our head mechanic, with the boat out of the water. Installation went very good, no issues. The Stern Thruster works as advertised, and absolutely is an incredible aid to docking. I have had the boat in a few very tight situations with current and winds, and the Stern Thruster made all the difference in the world between having a serious problem, to making it a simple operation. I am very pleased with the Stern Thruster..."

Michael McCourry

"The pre-sales customer service was excellent. Installation was straightforward and the directions were easy to follow. Thruster works fine. I have a 42' trawler, and it moves the stern quickly and smoothly with excellent response time. "

Tom Lahey

Murrells Inlet, SC, USA
42' Beneteau Swift Trawler

"The thruster made a world of difference. We have traveled through 100s of locks and a tap on the bow thruster pushes the boat off the wall. No more frantically reaching for the guide lines. Boaters come to help us dock in tight spots and just watch as the thrusters slide the boat into position. A lot of boaters see the ease at which we dock and can't believe it. Although they want to help and I never refuse, they wait until the boat comes to them to tie off."

George Kloet

"Installed my stern thruster myself. It was very easy to do. Any questions that I had were promptly answered by customer service. My stern thruster is working very well. I can now dock, and navigate canals without the usual stress!"

"We have now completed our first year of boating with the Sideshift bow thruster on our 25 ft Four Winns Cruiser. It has greatly improved our boating experience by largely eliminating the stress associated with docking under challenging conditions. The Sideshift thruster has increased our confidence which has resulted in us making far better use of our boat. The system has been problem free, very easy to use and has clearly been an investment well worth the money. Our experience from initial inquiry to final installation was top notch, this company clearly understands how to deliver excellent customer service. We have and will continue to recommend this system to fellow boaters."

David Duc

Brockville, ON, Canada
25' Four Winns Cruiser

"Your product has changed my boating experience. Docking a single screw trawler has always been a challenge. Now with the powerful Stern Thruster my maneuverability makes my docking experience a pleasure. Thruster is a charm. Customer service and the entire process was seamless. I cannot thank you enough for making the process simple. "

Donald Sinovoi

New City, NY, USA
36' Monk Trawler

"Great product, easy to use! Makes docking a breeze...even on those windy days! One of the best options on the market in terms of pricing and installation without drilling a big hole in your boat. Customer Service experience was great. Easy ordering & payment process. And helpful information on which unit was best for my boat. I am still getting used to it, but it does help with docking for sure. Much less stressful vs. last year!"

Canaan Lawrence

Saint Joseph, MI, USA
Rinker 342FV

"Bow Thruster was installed. That went well, we did it ourselves. The performance is wonderful, no stress when docking. Unit is very strong for my 34ft, works great. Other boaters are very interested in our unit and are considering it for themselves. I am very happy with mine.  I think the power of clients who have purchased is the best. Word spreads pretty quick when people are happy with what they have. Last weekend I showed two couples how ours works. They are very interested for their own boats."

Lynn Panneton

Bradford, ON, Canada

"Excellent, helpful, friendly, and professional. My stern thruster allows total freedom to move the boat in close quarters and totally reduces my wife's docking stress. Great product. Easy to install, with excellent on line help if needed."

36' Monk

"For the last twenty years I owned a series of twin inboard engine boats and had grown accustomed to being able to dock with confidence. When I bought a tritoon, I went back to docking at the mercy of the wind and the currents. With the Sideshift Thruster, I can again dock with confidence"

Paul Thacker

Shelby Township, MI, USA
JC Neptune Sport Tritoon

"I picked up the PT230 Kit in Ottawa and customer service was excellent. The installation instructions were easy to follow and completed in one day. I am required to dock on many unfamiliar docks in the 1000 Islands near Gananoque. The thruster has allowed me to dock and leave with ease. I have used a Sideshift Thruster for 4 years and will continue to use one as long as I am a boater."

Dan Spencer

Morgan Munoz

31' Tung Hwa Trawler

"The bow thruster is a super addition to my boat. I am fairly new at boating, so docking was always a bit stressful, but not at all now. In fact, I use the boat more often, because I am comfortable taking it out in less than perfect weather (unlike before). Plus, I now can take it out without having to have someone along to help me tie up back in the slip. Just "thanks" for helping improve my boating experience."

"Great service - self installation went very well. Fantastic. A wife saver! Pre-thruster she was very nervous - now she mans the stern position when locking or docking and I manage the bow with the thruster. Using bow thruster in concert with two drives allow boat to move virtually sideways."

Mark Mallette

Metcalfe, ON, CAN
326 Carver MY

"I am very pleased with the performance of my thruster (stern). My boat is not huge, a 32' Nordic Tug, but it is quite heavy at 16,000 pounds. Prior to the thruster installation, I had a very hard time getting the stern in place and several dockings created tension and stress. It's made all the difference in the world and has made boating twice as enjoyable as it was without my Sideshift. I'd encourage anybody that's having difficulty in around the docks to try a Sideshift Thruster. You simply can't find anything else at that low a price that is that easy to install and use and you'll be so pleasantly surprised by the performance that you'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner."

Matt Dunham

Mukul Joshie

SeaRay Sundancer 280

"Installation was easy given how complicated it is to install a traditional thruster. I have a 27 foot express cruiser with just a single engine. I boat on the San Francisco bay, where the winds rarely dip below 10 knots, and docking takes place on variety of crowded guest docks not to mention my own tandem slip. Without the thruster, this would all be nearly impossible. In many situations I just wouldn't be able to dock at all. The sideshift gives me peace of mind and also comes in handy in a variety of non-docking maneuvers."

"The thruster is magnificent. I have been able to dock in any situation very smoothly. In winding conditions, both blowing on and off the dock and against currents. Love the remote, as I can dock and secure the stern at the same time hold the bow in place till I get there to secure it. Customer Service was excellent, installation was not complicated."

"Very helpful customer service team, and the mechanic who installed thruster said the same. Boat spins on a dime. It's a straight inboard but now maneuvers like it has twin engines."

John Brezine

"Excellent product. Works really well, and when combined with my already fitted bow thruster, makes docking very easy, even in windy conditions. Customer service was very good, considering it was an overseas transaction. Installation was very straight forward, excellent instructions. One query I had was answered very quickly. Overall, great product and great customer service!!"

Craig Wilson

"Installation was completed neatly and proficiently. My boat is 35ft, single screw. Reverse docking is no longer a problem. No longer do I look for favourable wind conditions. Very happy with the back-up service provided by Sideshift USA."

"I used the installer recommended by your company. Pat was incredibly professional and efficient. He brought the unit with him and picked up the battery for me as well. It works very well."

"My 41' Luhrs with large enclosed flybridge was in a downwind slip in San Pedro. Major anxiety 500 yards from the dock. After 2nd docking anxiety was reduced by 90%. After 5 returns anxiety is gone and thruster use is just for fine tuning. With a 40' boat the thruster gives me peace of mind in new locations and at the bait barge."

David Morton

Santa Monica, CA, USA

"I am more than pleased with the operation and the simple installation. My wife has had two knee replacements and I don't want her jumping on to a dock and at my age I don't want to. With the bow thruster and dual control toggles almost anything is possible in close quarters, unless there is a gale!"

Jim Hepple

"Customer service is top-notch! Great support after the purchase. Large pontoon has a crazy amount of sail area. Coming into my slip I have to make a hard 90 degree turn with a prevailing cross wind. The PT230 makes the tricky maneuver a breeze! Highly recommend this product to anyone who owns a boat with low main power and high sail area. It will make boating very enjoyable."

"Purchasing of the bow and stern thruster was very easy. The thrusters work very well and make docking less stressful knowing I have the thrusters available to use if need be."

"The Sideshift Thrusters have really taken the stress out of docking and locking through with our 40 ft. houseboat. It was all very easy. The installer was quick and efficient. We have both a deployable bow thruster and a fixed stern thruster. With the combination it is much easier to dock the 40 ft. houseboat even in a wind."

Alan Melnychuk

"Installation went fine. Made one call to customer service and they were very helpful. We bought it so we could cruise up and down the Erie Canal in upstate NY. It makes going through the locks and docking along the canal a breeze. With the wireless remote, the Captain can help hold the lines in the lock and bow thrust when needed."

Leslie Graham

"Purchasing was a good experience, did the install myself and went pretty straight forward. I must add that it is very quiet to operate, unlike my existing (different brand) bow thruster that sounds like a giant milkshake blender. And I`m very impressed with the wireless controls that came with the Sideshift."

Randall Peck

"I love it. It helps a lot in docking, especially in windy conditions. It will turn your boat on a dime -saved me many times from running in to something. Very easy to use. Use my boat in Florida. It is a Monterey 280 SCR, single engine. Sometimes weather is changing to very rough conditions and my thruster is exposed to a very serious test, but so far it has survived and always helps me put my boat in a safe location."

Robert Belza

"My experience was very good and installation process very easy. I did not think it was so simple to mount it with such excellent performance. My thruster is working very good and It is very easy to maneuver in the harbor without stress."

"We have the retractable thrusters mounted at the bow and the stern. Our boat is long, without the side thrusters we would have a hard time maneuvering in the narrow canal. We use the thrusters to keep us positioned if we need to stop, to dock the boat, or to turn the boat around. When the side thrusters are on the passengers don't even know we're using them, and they don't use much power. Without them it would make my job pretty difficult!"

Captain Adam, Rideau Canal Cruises

"The thrusters are working great, being new to boating I was always stressed coming back to my slip, discovered seasoned boaters have the same concerns, can't believe how well the thruster worked and took away docking anxiety."

"Great product! Would highly recommend to anyone that has any reservations docking their boat. I get positive comments all the time about being a pro when docking my boat. Used to look like a blooming idiot. Purchasing the Sideshift unit was painless. Customer service and sales led me to the exact unit I needed and it has worked flawless. I had my boat dealer install and they did a perfect job. Thruster is magnificent! Have a 30 foot single engine boat with thruster on front of boat. It is amazing how much less effort is required to back the boat into any slip in any conditions. Wind is no longer an issue."

"I purchased a thruster for the bow and stern and since I'm often on the boat myself, I now dock in all conditions, and in tight marinas, without hesitation. Most people wonder who’s driving the boat while I stand on the dock with the remote. They are really powerful which facilitates leaving and returning. Worked together with Sideshift on the installation and it went super well and exactly as they explained."

Kent Desmond

Jack Powles Super 38’

"My bow & stern thrusters are working fine after being in salt water for 2 years going on 3. I was amazed how strong the thrusters are when working against the wind!!! I was pinned against a dock by a strong wind in shallow water facing towards land at a boat launch. The thrusters had enough strength to push me off the dock so I could turn my boat around with my engines and get going. I have a kicker on my stern so I needed to be pushed off the dock by 3-4 ft and they did it!!! I found out that being in a flotilla of 300 or more boats that with my thrusters I could maneuver far more precisely than most of the boats out there!!"

"The boat originally had a bow thruster-with the stern thruster it makes it all so easy to maneuver. Performed without a problem on my Albin 28. Customer service was excellent. Installation was very simple and painless. It has given me a lot more confidence when negotiating tight areas."

"The Sideshift bow thruster's performance is outstanding. Docking in wind or narrow channels is now safer and easier. My wife never wanted to dock our boat before we had the bow thruster installed but now she has the confidence and control to get the boat into our slip."

Vince Johns

"It is great! A game changer when it came to docking our 22' tritoon boat in tight spots. My wife takes the wheel and I use the remote on the thruster. The customer service was wonderful. They were there for any questions. Installation process was good with help from my friends. We are both more relaxed. So glad we purchased this to help us truly enjoy our boat!"

Lance Griffin

"My boat is a 50 foot, single engine trawler. It had a bow thruster when I purchased it but adding the stern thruster gave me maneuverability I haven't had since I sold my twin engine boat. Low speed maneuvering and docking are now simple, even in mild wind. One thing they don't mention is how quiet the unit is. My traditional bow thruster you can hear everywhere in the boat, even over the diesel engine. The Sideshift is quiet enough it took a while to get used to using it."

Scott Young

Tim Carr

"No more stress, easy as pie to learn how to use it. Made life easier for the wife also, the weekends are better with less stress and confidence in boating has improved 10 fold. The instruction manual and on-line video had all the details needed to install the Sideshift. And customer service was attentive to all my questions."

John Thomas

"Customer service was top notch! I could not ask for a better experience. I installed the bow and stern thrusters myself, and the process was very straight forward and went very good. What I really liked was that everything is included in the kits. No running around looking for additional parts. Just take your time and follow the directions. Goodbye stress!! The anxiousness of approaching a docking situation is gone! Docking is now a one person job. I can literally move my boat sideways into a spot that is two feet longer than the boat. The bow and stern thrusters give me completed control of the situation that I never had before. The Sideshift thrusters have exceeded my expectations. I now enjoy docking my boat in front of a dock full of people to their amazement. Couldn't boat without them now."

"Major stress reliever! Our boat is a single screw...very touchy to control in a tight area such as docking especially when windy, bow thruster makes life much easier."

Edward Strand

"We own a Silverton 322. The stern of the boat is like a huge sail. Our stern thruster has taken away that problem. My wife loves the key fob control. It allows her to give the stern that extra shift when she needs to reach the dock from the swim platform. This is the only way for her to reach the dock."

Douglas Brignull

Grimsby, ON, Canada
Silverton 322

"My purchase was simple. The staff at Sideshift are extremely helpful and friendly. The unit was easy to install and I did it myself. I used to come back from a great day on the water and then when returning I would get nervous about docking. It would ruin my day. Not anymore, even when the wind is blowing I can back right into my dock just by using the joystick. Many boats in my marina are afraid to go out when there is a wind greater than 10 MPH. Not us, we're out all the time. This was the best investment I could have made for my boat. Lots of people ask about it and I recommend it to everyone. I even show off sometimes with it in tight spaces just for the fun of it."

George Kennedy

Ballston Spa, NY, USA
Stingray 250CS

"Customer service was great to work with and "held my hand" through the purchasing process. The installation went very well, and was much easier than I anticipated. The thruster works great, especially since it is mounted on the swim platform. I own a single engine inboard boat that is very difficult to dock especially in the wind. Your stern thruster took care of that problem and makes docking a breeze, no pun intended. I was doubtful at first but you made a believer out of me. I would recommend your product to anyone."

Gregory McVeigh

"I installed both bow and stern Sideshift Thrusters in two days, both thrusters work flawlessly and docking is stressless. I love how quiet the thrusters operate and I never have any concerns of docking, where ever I go."

The customer service department was very professional and very knowledgeable on the product and helped with the installation process involved to make sure that everything is working fine. The thruster on my premier 290 Tri Tune pontoon works great in maneuvering into our slip and also maneuvering into the fuel pump area. It does everything and then some in the day-to-day operation of our pontoon. I would highly recommend this product"
